Nature Walk

As I walked along life's winding path,
I stopped to take in the beauty.

The sky was a perfect shade of blue,

As the sun beamed brightly through the trees.

The sweet scent of red honey suckle filled the air,

As the red bird sang a happy tune.

Yes, all of Mother Nature's beauty surrounded me, and soon my troubles floated away on the soft gentle Spring breeze.

All of this stuff looks strangely familiar.

Ok, Carol and I need your support again. This time it is our Dad. I just got off the phone with my sister, and apparently my Dad had a Transfusion reaction to some blood products he received today. He coded. They were able to recessitate him, but he is in ICC. He is able to talk and he told them that if he codes again he does not want to be recessitated. I am waiting for Harvey to come home and stay with the boys, and then I am going to go to the hospital. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I need you guys to support me. I think I need to take that Nature Walk again, because my troubles just reappeared.

My dad is doing better. They may try to infuse another unit of blood, but they will do it in the CCU this time. He had a severe transfusion rx and his heart stopped last night. We are very lucky to still have him with us, but he feels a little less fortunate. He told me last night that he has had a good long life and that he wished they would have just let him go on. I told him that Mom and Theresa did what they felt they needed to do in order to live with themselves. I told him that Theresa needed him here with her for just a little bit longer to give her the support she needs to get through her current cancer ordeal. He just smiled and patted my arm and said O.K. If they don't give him any more blood, then they are going to move him to a regular room. Now I must shower and head back up there. Talk to you later. And thanks for all of the support.

Hi honey. Just checking in to see if there's any news. It was good to hear your voice last night, I'm glad we had an opportunity to chat before you left for the hospital. And I love the story you shared. Your Dad's a wonderful man.

Our thoughts are with you and your family. And you know everyone here loves you to pieces. Please keep us informed if you can find the time and energy.

Love you,

G'day Cecile,
I am glad to see that your dad is doing better. I think that your Mom and Theresa did the right thing. Please, when things settle down a bit, do you think you could find the time to visit Helen's Blob. Helen had to write a love poem in her professional writing class at school.

I want to call, but I'm not going to. I think Bindi called. Right. Are you okay? I love you. I saw you over on Random Chicks. Was that too funny, or what!!!??? I'm still laughing at that girl. And then on my blog with Kylie and Inner Voices. Is that guy actually a mechanic?! I don't think that car's going to work tomorrow any better than it did today!

I love you honey. Keep us informed because we care a great deal. Have a nice weekend sweetie.

I agree

but mother nature thrown in with pics of girls is more my cup of tea
